the lecture focuses on late Old Kingdom when Abydos enjoyed one of its
"golden ages". How did Abydos come into such prominence in the 6th Dynasty?
Who were the key players? The lecture highlights the lives and careers of
some of the most remarkable people from this influential provincial city,
including Vizier Weni the Elder and Princess Ankhesenpepy II, and elucidates
their close relationship with the royal family based in Memphis.
